         Textile and Dyeing how did our small town fit into this?

Do you have  any documentation or information that might help us in trying to tell the story of dyeing and weaving in our
small town.   
We would love to see pictures of the original dye house if anyone has any.
Have you checked your attic? Maybe  your home was a part of the cottage weaving industry.  

You may contact Gladys Chase 599-3608 or email
